Description & Technical Information
-
Chef de cave Frédéric Panaïotis arrived at Ruinart for his first vintage in 2007, a vintage full of "weather challenges" for Pinot Noir, there is no doubt Fred truly mastered it with this champagne which is 80% Chardonnay and the remainder is 20% Pinot Noir added as red wine.

The rosé prestige cuvée of Champagne Ruinart, Dom Ruinart Rosé is a Grand Cru only blend of Dom Ruinart Chardonnay topped off with 15-20% red wine from the Montagne de Reims. Since the first vintage in 1966, this cuvée is consistently ranked amongst the greatest rosés on the market and this 2002 expression is one of the absolute best. The Pinot Noir red wine is sourced from the Grand Cru villages of Sillery and Verzenay and macerated on the skins for nine days before pressing, extracting the pink colour and soft fruit tannins. Blending this red wine into the assemblage gives a rosé with a vibrant, deep coral colour.

Weather: 2007 is an extraordinary vintage and one of the very few in Champagne when the harvest began in August. After a sunny and very warm spring, the months of June, July and August brought rather gloomy weather and heavy rainfall. And yet, these cool temperatures did nothing to counteract the vineyard’s early and rapid progress, with the grapes quickly reaching full ripeness.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand Cru - Chardonnay: 80% Côte des Blancs: Avize, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger, Chouilly and Montagne de Reims: Sillery, Verzenay | Pinot Noir: 20% vinified as red wine from a Grand Cru vineyard in Aÿ.
Grape Varieties: 80% Chardonnay & 20% Pinot Noir as red wine
Ageing: 10 years on the lees
Disgorged: February 2018
Dosage: 5 g/l
Drink: Now to 2032+

Tasting Note: The evolving colour has copper hues and the complex nose also shows fine, maturing Pinot notes. Alongside the usual apricot and spice aromas, the wine comes with a stylish gunpowdery toastiness, vanilla and layered melange of citrus fruit ranging from candied mandarin to orange peel. On the light-weight and beautifully energetic palate the Chardonnay body is evident and the wine comes across as a particularly elegant Dom Ruinart Rosé. - Tasting note by Essi Avellan MW

“The 2007 was chef de cave Frédéric Panaïotis’ first go at this iconic cuvée and despite the vintage’s challenges for Pinot Noir he truly mastered it. The evolving colour has copper hues and the complex nose also shows fine, maturing Pinot notes.

“The 2007 Dom Ruinart Rosé is fabulous. The Rosé has all of the energy of the Blanc, with the extra richness that comes from the Pinot in the blend. Rose petal, mint, blood orange and cinnamon are some of the many aromas and flavors that are laced throughout. There is a feeling of translucence in the Rosé that is impossible to miss. I would cellar it for a few years. This is another magnificent wine from Chef de Caves Frédéric Panaïotis in his first vintage at Ruinart. Disgorged: February, 2018.”

“The 2007 Dom Ruinart Rosé is showing brilliantly, bursting from the glass with exuberant aromas of blood orange, tangerine and raspberries, mingled with hints of buttered toast, brioche and spices. Full-bodied, deep and vinous, it's layered and elegantly muscular, with terrific concentration and a racy spine of acidity, enlivened by a pillowy mousse. Concluding with a long and sapid finish, it's aromatically open but structurally tightly wound, so I suspect it will reward another few years' age on cork, even if it's hard to resist today. In any case, it deserves to participate in any discussion of the 2007 Champagne vintage's high points.”

Antonio Galloni
“The 2007 Dom Ruinart Rosé is another brilliant wine from Chef de Caves Frédéric Panaiotis in his first vintage at the house. Delicate, nuanced and wonderfully polished, the 2007 is airy and gracious in feel, with superb aromatic intensity and exceptional balance. Sweet floral notes, mint, spice and crushed red berries are all laced together in this very pretty, gracious Rosé. More finesse than power, the 2007 is positively sublime.”
